Anti-Wrinkle is a term used to describe a variety of products that can be used to relax muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue that are holding tension. Whilst these products are highly effective at reducing wrinkles, they can also be used to treat a multitude of other concerns, including: migraine, palsy, teeth grinding, excessive sweating and hayfever!
A Hayfever Treatment is completely painless and NEEDLE-FREE. It has been shown to reduce the symptoms of hayfever by up to 60% with results lasting between 4 to 5 months (sometimes up to 12 months!). If you are a hayfever sufferer, it is worth giving this treatment a go!
HOW IT WORKS
A small amount of Anti-Wrinkle product is sprayed into the nose to calm the nerve-endings inside. This will prevent overstimulation from the allergens that provoke hayfever symptoms.
The patient will be asked to cease hayfever medications 24 hours before their appointment.
At the appointment, our Cosmetic Nurse will combine the Anti-Wrinkle product with a small amount (2.5ml) of saline into a disposable nasal spray atomiser bottle. This mixture is then sprayed up each nostril (a handful of sprays in each side) in a fine mist to coat the mucousal lining of the nose.
Initially, the spray can trigger some hayfever symptoms such as sneezing. The Nurse will stay with you while these symptoms settle over the next 10 minutes before checking you out of the clinic.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
No, you may resume normal duties immediately.
HOW SOON WILL I GET RELIEF?
The product starts to take effect immediately, but will peak around 2 weeks after the treatment. Results will be evident for 4 to 5 months (sometimes 9 to 12 months) following treatment, but will vary between individuals.
WHEN CAN I REPEAT THE TREATMENT?
People with highly overreactive nerve endings (chronic hayfever sufferers), may wish to repeat the protocol 4 weeks after the initial treatment to increase their results. Following this, you can repeat the treatment again in 4-5 months time. As time goes on, treatments may become less frequent. How often you require treatments will be assessed individually.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS TREATMENT COST?
It is $199 for the first treatment, which includes your script and a full consultation. This appointment may take around 30 minutes in total.
Follow up treatments (within 12 months of the first treatment) will be charged at $99 and are only 15 minute appointments.
